The Annual Meeting is a combination of important policy discussion and educational opportunities for MSV members, and a forum for all MSV members to share ideas. MSV’s House of Delegates (HOD) is the integral and primary aspect of the Annual Meeting. It serves as the policy making body of the Society. The HOD considers resolutions that determine MSV’s position on many issues. There are two sessions of HOD that occur during MSV’s Annual Meeting. They are held Friday and Sunday.
MSV HOD Committees: Committee members (Reference, Rules, Tellers, and Credentials) must be available Friday & Sunday. Committee selection process will begin Sept. 23. Selections are chosed from registered Delegates and Alternates.
MEDICAL STUDENTS:If you are a medical student, please email Jenny Young, firstname.lastname@example.org, for registration information.
HOMESTEAD RENOVATIONS continue throughout the property and will continue through 2022. These renovations will impact some of the common areas, meeting space and sleeping rooms.
SLEEPING ROOMS: Currently, our room block is full; however, we are working with the Homestead, and are monitoring availability regularly. We suggest that members book in other hotels nearby to ensure you have a room for the weekend.
Here are some alternate lodging options nearby:
• Local Bed and Breakfasts : https://discoverbath.com/where-to-stay/bed-breakfast-inns/
